Investors get a tax break with early dividends
from USA Today
Big investors and insiders with big stakes in individual companies are getting a big gift this year: a massive tax break. More than 600 companies announced plans late last year to either pay dividends early or cough up extra dividend payments in 2012. The dividends are enormous, totaling more than $14.4 billion just from the 30 companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 that made early or special payments.
